“I shall always remember your invaluable advice to "Strive to be a good person first". Thank you for everything. #HappyFathersDay,” wrote Sachin while sharing the picture on the micro-blogging website. On many previous occasions, Tendulkar has praised his father for supporting him always during his childhood. The former Indian opener was participating in the 1999 World Cup in England when he came to know about his father’s demise. He travelled back home for the rituals. However, he soon resumed his national duty and just a few days after the tragedy, he played a blistering 140-run knock against Kenya and guided India to a 94-run triumph.
